FORMAT PS4 / ETA TBC PUB CYGAMES / DEV CYGAMES, PLATINUM GAMES
In our previous sessions with Granblue Fantasy: Relink we’ve seen Gran and the rest of his sky pirate crew take on a single-player story mission; now we’re going hands-on with a demo showcasing the online co-op section of the game. What better way to do that than with the series’ four pretty boy Dragon Knights (Lancelot, Vane, Percival, and Siegfried) battling their way to a crashed airship?
As Relink is based on a mobile RPG where players can link up with friends worldwide to fight big bosses, it makes sense that this console-based character action RPG should also embrace multiplayer. Though as PlatinumGames collaborated on designing the base of the game, you can expect some stylish, in-depth combat as well. (Platinum has since moved on to other projects.)
Characters have unique weapons, from guns to fiery swords, which change how each one plays, and with four players to a party that gives you plenty of options. (Expect your favourite emotes from the mobile game to appear.) Plus, in the campaign, we’ve seen Lyria tagging along to give the party access to special Final Fantasy-like summons. The Dragon Knights, however, go it alone in our preview, albeit with their own special weapons, each providing mastery of different elements. That means they’ve got a lot of bases covered.
